House Hunting Update

How’s the house hunting going you ask?

Well I’d say smashingly, thank you.

We went out yesterday with our Realtor to see a few properties that we have bookmarked as potentials.  The very first house we saw was absolutely fantastic.  It had everything we wanted and was in the best neighborhood on our list of possibilities.  We are in love with this house.  I might write it a little love note today, that is how much I love it.  Do you think chocolates would be too much?  Yeah a little over the top perhaps.

So are you making an offer on it then?

Well, that’s complicated.  The answer to that is no, but should be followed by not yet.  Its been on the market a whopping 8 days and is just a tad over our desired budget.  We want to feel it out.  Knowing all the risks involved with this activity, we’re, of course, going to obsess for the next several weeks.  Please insert your little foam ear plugs and step away from this blog for at least 30 days if you aren’t as thrilled as I am about this house and can’t stick it out.  I wont hold it against you.  Don’t worry, general rants about nothing in particular will most likely commence after the lunar cycle…

We saw 5 houses yesterday.  The first one being the only one worth our time.  The rest were simply not acceptable as BabyBound dwellings so lets just pretend they no longer exist.  But don’t go as far as burning them all down in your mind.  That’s a bit extreme.
We’re going out today to see 4 more.  Now, in all fairness, these 4 are high contenders.  We have seen several pictures of each and have very high hopes for them.  It actually is quite possible that we will cheat on first house and find a new love.  (When it comes to love affairs of the inanimate abode kind, I tend to be quite fickle)

So there you have it, folks.  Project: House is well under way and we’re getting positive feedback.  This project seems to be far easier then project: baby as house seems to take direction far better then my body.   Since body has to tag along, maybe it will pick up a few pointers….

    I have just enough OCD to stick it out with you. Let the obsessions begin!

    After initial enthusiasm about my project house, I’ve drifted into the same cynical apathetic zone as I have with my project baby.

    Humbug!

    Yeah, we can stick around. I hope that one of your choices works out soon.
